It's the game that has divided families and ended friendships. More arguments have been had over the Monopoly board than any other game ever created. It would seem that there's no way to make the game even more competitive--but there is. For Game of Thrones fans, Monopoly has moved up in the world and become better than ever: this special Edition Game of Thrones Monopoly is designed with fans in mind.

Go directly to jail. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. And on the way, see if you can take the hands of your enemies, kill those who stand between you and the Iron Throne, and, oh, buy as many expensive properties as possible. For fans of George R. R. Martin's iconic series, this game of Monopoly is the perfect addition to your game closet. Just be warned: if a regular game of Monopoly quickly gets out of control at your house, this version could quickly be even worse.

Each piece is perfectly designed to reflect the devotion of fans to A Song of Ice and Fire. The artwork is exquisite. The board displays a huge map of Westeros, and the "railroad" spots on the board are taken up by emblems of House Baratheon, House Targarayen, House Lannister, and House Stark. The "houses" and "hotels" have been replaced by "villages" and "keeps." "Chance" and "Community Chest" cards are now "Valor Morghulis" and "Iron Throne" cards. In addition to the other updates made to the game, the rules come on an elegantly rolled scroll, not the usual flat, folded sheet. This game is filled with class and elegance befitting fans of the iconic series.

On this board, Game of Thrones fans can battle it out financially, gradually taking control of steadily more of Westeros until at last, there's only one man left standing--and he is the one who truly has the power to sit on the Iron Throne. Or the one who has all the money and has, therefore, won the game. One of those.

If you're looking for a perfect gift for a Game of Thrones fan or looking for an addition for your own memorabilia collection, this is the perfect game for your needs. Just remember: if anyone dies during the course of the game, it's George R. R. Martin's fault, not the fault of the game creators!

It's important to note that, as beautiful as the Game of Thrones Monopoly game is, many buyers have noted that the game appears to have been thrown together hastily in response to the rising popularity of the series. Fans have noted that the game locations are primarily from the television show, not the book series, and that free parking, go to jail, and jail spaces remain the same as in the classic Monopoly game rather than being given theme-appropriate titles. Overall, however, this Monopoly game is stunning, beautiful, and impressive. It's the perfect addition to your game collection and will be beloved by fans for a long time to come.
